A surprise October issue of Harper’s Bazaar, featuring Janet Jackson both on newsstands and the subscriber’s cover was announced. Janet breaks the silence for the first time since Michael’s death in a world exclusive interview for Harper’s Bazzar (check out a snippet below):
Janet Jackson hasn’t watched television since her brother Michael died suddenly in Los Angeles on June 25. She has blocked herself off completely from the hysterical media coverage of his death — who did it, what did it. “It will drive you crazy,” she says. “People can have rhinoceros skin, but there’s a point when something’s going to hurt you. Not everyone is stone, stone. I haven’t watched the news in weeks. I had to ask my chef, How’s Obama doing? I haven’t read a newspaper. On top of that, [we've lost] a family member.”
